Call Me A Homicidal Maniac Crazy

Yes, my baby is only three months old.

No, he does not sleep through the night (on a bad night, he wakes up every hour past his initial four hour sleep stretch).

I'm quite aware that the horrors of potty training, teething, and terrible twos are in my not-so-distant future.

There are days where I want to take my frustration and sleep deprivation out on the world via a massive wrecking ball.

I vaguely remember that the day after my c-section, I wimpered that I was NEVER DOING THAT (pregnancy/labor/being cut in half) AGAIN.

But I keep thinking that it wouldn't be such a bad thing if I got pregnant again- now. I even kind of WANT to. I know it sounds crazy, but a part of me is already yearning for baby #2. No matter how much work, blood, sweat and tears it requires, I love this baby stuff. I love babies. I especially love MY babies. I think I want ten.

Can't you see why?

Ha! I was going to type something grumpy or just agree that you are crazy and I lost the words when I saw that picture...

This gives me hope that I won't blame my child for pregnancy misery forever and he might have a sibling or two one day. Jacob is setting the bar pretty high for a little brother or sister though!

The urge ... it is strong. I loved being pregnant, so it's even worse! but i must graduate first!!

You are a better mother than I. I still distinctly remember months of feet shoved into my lungs, ending with my hoo-hah being mutilated. I look at Cora's sweet little face and beautiful smile and think "You will be an only child."

Awww....spoken like a true mommy. Or so I've been told. I think what you're going through is normal. The great thing is there are no rules when it comes to this type of thing, so when you're ready, go for it!

Jacob is so absolutely adorable!!! He REALLY could be a baby model. I've never met him, but his pics ALWAYS make me smile. :- )
